*Faints*

Upon reviving: you know who is under all that Tammy Faye makeup, don't you? It's Jimmy Hoffa.

That Jimmy Hoffa joke is so old that it was first told on Arthur Godfreys' Breakfast Club before Jimmy even disappeared. Actually, when they removed Tammy Faye's makeup, they discovered Mr. Ed.

If you remember Arthur Godfrey's Breakfast Club, just go ahead and shoot yourself. You're already deader that the Lake Chapala Society anyway!

At least it was Mr. Ed and not Rex the Horse.

I do in fact remember Arthur Godfrey. From the radio, and then from TV. And I remember Tallulah Bankhead...I aspired to BE her.

Bubba,



I am curious! How do you know so much about the LCS? Were you an elected officer with LCS? Were you a long time volunteer dedicating your time to helping others.

I find your comments to be those of someone with inside the LCS insite.

You are one funny dudette. You are the type of amusing person I have felt was out there somewhere. But, Norman Vincent Peale? How about Giselle McKenzie on the Lucky Strike Hit Parade? We are not long for this world which may please some among us.

berniegu:

OK, since you aksed, berniegu, my closing statement on the LCS.

I know you were ribbing me on the hope that your statement posed as a question would be too difficult for someone with the moniker "Bubba" to figure out. I took the self-effacing nom de plume of "Bubba" because Norman Vincent Peale, "The Pep Boys", Cal Worthington (Come see Cal... [ you have to be from California]) and "Shining Path" were already taken.

The LCS is an organization beloved by many. As Jerry said, Bubba is just kidding. The French (one of which I had the pleasure to appoint my significant other many years ago) have a couple of sayings that fit the bill down at the Gringo Clique.

"People making their own cinema."

"Those who (expell gas) higher than (that place from which it is meant to be expelled).

Bubba: I was in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, a couple of weeks ago and was watching cable TV. I was watching channel 11 CBS out of Anchorage AK. And there was Cal Worthinton in all his glory selling cars, I nearly died. He was in Seattle for a while too. Gee, what does that have to do with books for LCS? I'm not sure. Maybe Cal was an avid reader

But Bubba, alas, you did figure it out!!

May I hold you to your word of it being the last SLAM on the LCS?

I am not a member of LCS and have only a little background in what they do , but I think it is more good than bad.

I bought a Datsun 200 SX from Cal Worthington.

All Bubbas in Texas are treated with respect.

Johanson:

I was ribbing berniegu who was ribbing me about my (marginal) affiliation with the LCS. Cal Worthington may have never read a book in his life but I remember him from when I first arrived in L.A. in about 1966. This was one successful fellow from all apearances.

My affiliation with the LCS has consisted of the following:

Went to the "Newcomers'" Desk immediately after arriving here two years ago only to watch the poor elderly volunteer frantically searching through this dog- eared binder looking for the answer to some complex question such as "Where can I find a good vet?" Never got an answer. I thought she was going to expire.

Rented all of the Soprano tapes. That was fun. Also rented two hideously unacceptable home made VCRs which were of such poor quality that they reminded me of the old scratched up Gene Autrey records I threw away in 1971.

Went through the library which reminded me of the the book exchange club at the Motel 6 in Modesto.

Bought one cup of Arizona country style dreadful coffee made with a sock there two years ago.

Got ripped off in a big way by their "group" health plan with Seguros Monterrey.

My future affiliation with the LCS is:

Ex-member.

Ah, Bernie, I'm beginning to like you. I admire those who participate in these sorts of competitions - especially those who are engagingly underhanded. I'm sorry, I didn't know you were a Texan. I realize that Bubba is a term of respect in Texas comparable to Colonel or Uncle in my native Alabama.

However, I must disappoint you. The LCS is an itch I must occasionally scratch. I will, however, try to be fair. Their current management is trying to bring the organization into the 21st century. After a year of that effort, however, I would not be surprised to see them all run for the border. There are some contentious old geezers over there with whom they must deal. This is not easy. Believe it or not, I wish them luck.

Bubba, Ya'll are making me feel younger. It thought I was one of the few oldies for whom a Sears catalog was a necessary "fixture" in the outhouse. I can also remember when we got a COLEMAN LANTERN which was such a improvement in lighting over the kerosene lamps and did not smell. Ah yes, we have come a long way.

Mastiffs are way cool if a bit slobbery. but what is a Perrito de Calle? I think my most favorite of "Cal's" Dog Spot was that huge Brahma.

Perrito de Calle

A "Perrito de Calle", my dear, is a little street dog usually of questionable parentage and, most often, a damned fine pet. Don't worry, there are still few left down here for deserving owners.
